Humanitarian charter and minimum standards in humanitarian response
"The Humanitarian Charter and Minimum Standards in Humanitarian Response will not of course stop humanitarian crises from happening, nor can they prevent human suffering. What they offer, however, is an opportunity for the enhancement of assistance with the aim of making a difference to the lives of people affected by disaster” Ton van Zutphen, Sphere Board Chair and John Damerell, Sphere Project Manager in the Foreword to the new edition.
